Policies and Procedures

Due to the unique nature of the museum's collections, researchers must observe the following when using source material:

  1. You must register each visit.

  2. Backpacks, briefcases, purses, coats and other items not essential to research must be placed in lockers or other space provided.

  3. Research Center materials do not circulate; use is restricted to the reading room.

  4. Researchers must fill our call slips for each item requested.

  5. Pens or other permanent markers are not allowed. Pencils and paper are available.

  6. When working with a boxed collection, remove only one folder of manuscripts at a time.

  7. Maintain existing order and arrangement of unbound materials. Notify staff if you think anything is missing or out of order.

  8. Advance notice is required for use of most original newspapers. Newspapers on microfilm can be viewed at any time.

  9. Materials may be photocopied if there is no danger of damage to the original document.

  10. You are fully responsible for conforming to the laws of copyright, literary property rights, and libel.
